The two starting days of the WSOP Europe Main Event are in the books now. In total, 420 players enterd the tournament for €10,450 each and created a massive €4,032,000 prize pool. Today the second day of the tournament will be played and 230 players have chips left.
Michael Mizrachi (Day 1a) has the lead with 234,850 chips and Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier (Day 1b) is his closest opponent with 190,400 chips. Other poker stars with plenty of chips are, for example, JC Alvarado in 3rd place with 180,675, Daniel Negreanu is ranked 7 in chips (137,500), and 12-time gold bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth is in 14th place (116,150).
48 of the remaining squad of players will receive a share of the massive prize pool - minimum payout €20,150 - the winner will get €1,022,37! Right now the chances of well-known pros making deep runs are very good, but of course nothing is certain since there's a long way to go. We will simply have to wait and see how Day 2 plays out. Check back tomorrow for another update.

| 75% of what's left of the players from the starting field will still have a lot to do to guarantee that they will make part of the 25% of the people that will receive a share of those €4 millions for entering this tourney. The most well known players are already in the top of the list, so this may mean that little sharks will have serious difficulties in front of them. |

| very often we hear about big names entered the tourneys and are still in after 1st, 2nd day etc., but very rarely they are at the top of the list in such quantity, usually they are just somewhere in the middle, or one of them is amongst the leaders, but here we see mizrachi lead, elky second, alvarado 3rd, even negreanu in 7th|

| My favorite player Michael Mizrachi. Not a huge chip lead tho and many good/familiar faces. Nice to see them all on top makes it for a even better tournament than it is.|

| I really don't understand this part "48 of the remaining squad of players will receive a share of the massive prize pool - minimum payout €20,150 - the winner will get €1,022,37! " the 48th will take 20K and the winner will take only 1K ? Serriously :|? hope the winner will take 1Million |
